Dumbledore would be so proud…
Without the use of a magic wand (we assume…although it seems impossible otherwise), a few ambitious Harry Potter fans took Christmas decorating to the next level with a gargantuan gingerbread replica of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry—and Honeydukes has been given a run for its Galleons (sorry, guys).
The massive (and completely edible) gingerbread house was created by Duchess Bake Shop in Edmonton, Canada, and looks to be at least three feet tall. It even includes the covered wooden bridge, the staircase down to the train stop where the Hogwarts Express lets out and the many turrets of the school’s towers.
The best part: The bakery partnered with the Bissell Center, a local non-profit that helps those in poverty, and is accepting donations of socks (R.I.P. Dobby) to enter the contest for a chance to “destroy” (aka eat) the mind-blowingly accurate replica.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re working on Hagrid’s cabin for our own creation. Accio, icing!
